Prayer killer #8: Discord

7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 1 Pet 3:7

The Bible is here addressing husbands in particular, but the principles are just as applicable to us all in whatever relationships we have. The message is this: it is your responsibility to ensure that all your relationships are such that your prayers will not be hindered.

We need to be considerate and respectful and to see and treat everyone as Jesus would, with grace and dignity as equal heirs of God’s kingdom and children of God made in his image. We need to make every effor to live in harmony with one another and to put on love that binds everything together in perfect harmony. Remember, discord is a killer!
